Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will be getting it’s biggest patch to date later today, updating the game to version v1.13. The patch introduces a whole new multiplayer feature to the game. In addition, new DLC will be available starting August 15th.
The new multiplayer mode, the Tournament System, ushers in a points-based competition that has three reward tiers which grant you special in-game weapons or items based on how well you played. Once you unlock a weapon or item it’s yours to use until the next tournament period.
Brand new multiplayer DLC that will start rolling out to users as part of the PS Store updates starting on 15th August. The upcoming DLC can be unlocked either by earning the necessary in-game levels, completing specific treasure sets, or if you’d rather unlock a certain item quickly you can purchase it in the PS Store.
While new Labs, new DLC and the Tournament System are the major elements of patch 1.13, there’s a laundry list of other changes and improvements added to the multiplayer experience. For example, the patch adds 50 new trophies to the game – each DLC pack will have 10 trophies associated with them.
